An excellent Pirate101 tip from this month’s KI Live comes from community member Lookit Light:
“If you struggle with a low Nautical Level, never fear! You can raise your Nautical Level by sinking ships, assigning Companions to Sailin', and doing quests that give Nautical XP.” - Lookit Light

The First Nautical XP Party of 2019 - July 6
It’s not a strange occurrence to hear one of our great fan sites advertising a nautical exp party, and you’re going to want to listen up! Being in the right place at the right time is your first key to success.
A simple rule to sinking ships in a group is that if you’re in a ship that doesn’t have a lot of health to back it up, it’s best to let someone else take the lead. If you’re in a ship with a lot of health but not a lot of fire power, it’s best to take the hits for the group!
As soon as you see a ship firing on another player, use your bracket keys to target it and click your powers to activate them. At these parties, you might want to use powers that do damage or debuff quickly to be sure you’ll get the nautical experience you’re after.
Keep watch on @Pirate101 for details of when the next Nautical XP Party begins. The action can be fast and furious so try to keep up and enjoy the strength in numbers!
